Alpine skiing, or downhill skiing, is the pastime of sliding down snow-covered slopes on skis with fixed-heel bindings, unlike other types of skiing (cross-country, Telemark, or ski jumping) which use skis with free-heel bindings.
A contour line (also isocline, isopleth, isarithm, or equipotential curve) of a function of two variables is a curve along which the function has a constant value, so that the curve joins points of equal value.
Downhill mountain biking (DH) is a genre of mountain biking practiced on steep, rough terrain that often features jumps, drops, rock gardens and other obstacles.
Enduro in its most basic definition is a type of mountain bike racing where the downhills are timed, and the uphills are not.
This is a glossary of terms and jargon used in cycling, mountain biking, and cycle sport.
In mathematics, the gradient is a multi-variable generalization of the derivative.
Gravity, or gravitation, is a natural phenomenon by which all things with mass or energy—including planets, stars, galaxies, and even light—are brought toward (or gravitate toward) one another.
A hill is a landform that extends above the surrounding terrain.
In topography, the line of greatest slope is a curve following the steepest slope.
A mountain is a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak.
Mountain biking is the sport of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, using specially designed mountain bikes.
Singletrack (or single track) describes a type of mountain biking trail that is approximately the width of the bike.
Skiing can be a means of transport, a recreational activity or a competitive winter sport in which the participant uses skis to glide on snow.
A topographic profile or topographic cut is a representation of the relief of the terrain that is obtained by cutting transversely the lines of a topographic map.
Topography is the study of the shape and features of the surface of the Earth and other observable astronomical objects including planets, moons, and asteroids.
